Ilya/Emilia Kabakov

The Unfinished Paintings of Charles Rosenthal

Axel Vervoordt Gallery is pleased to present the complete cycle of paintings created in 1999 showing the room installation of white constructions, which are elements from the last proposed unfinished exhibition by Kabakov avatar and invented character Charles Rosenthal. Curated by Jill Silverman van Coenegrachts.

Conceived as part of the large body of works within the oeuvre, The Alternative History Of Art – The Unfinished Paintings Of Charles Rosenthal / Room No. 6, the exhibition is part of a collected, invented revisionist history given to us as a way of reading the Kabakovs’ complex imagination that rewrote art history from the end of the last century through to the end of Stalin, as a parable.

Artists: Ilya/Emilia Kabakov
